12 mistakes smart people never make twice

We all make mistakes.
But smart people never make these 12 mistakes twice.
Read which and follow their example: avoiding repeating these mistakes will save you a lot of wasted time, heartache and energy in life.
1) Embracing victimhood
Life is unfair. It truly is. You’ll get no argument from me on that, and no New Age positive mindset junk.
Life does hit us with all sorts of things we don’t deserve.
Situations happen where we are victimized by other people, bad luck, our own health or just blind chance.
This is an objective truth.
But playing the victim is different.
It’s where you decide that your own suffering and victimhood is uniquely horrific and deserving of pity and payback.
The result is that you end up expecting other people and situations to pay you back for the harm and injustice which has happened to you.
You’re dependent and weak.
We’ve all fallen into the victim mentality at times, but it’s one of the mistakes that smart people never make twice because they see that it just leads into a downward cycle of self-fulfilling prophecy.
